What is The Best Time to Visit Laguna Humantay ?

According to us, The best time for doing this wonderful trek will be during the dry season, from April to October. Trekking on rainy season November to March along the Andes is more brave, defiance but more colorful – why? Because during the rainy season the Peruvian Andes is blooming.

During the dry season, the weather is cold, strong winds but there is no rain whatever, the path is not muddy or wet either. Get yourself really warm clothing, good hiking equipments and you will be satisfied of being in Humantay trek.


Cusco - Humantay - Cusco

We will be leaving from Cusco early in the morning. Before reaching the starting point of the trek, we will have a brief stop to grab some breakfast. After breakfast, we will continue our drive to Mollepata, starting point of the Laguna Humantay Trek.

Here our guide will give you a quick short briefing before commencing our trek up the hill. We will be spending a lot of time on the shores of the lagoon witnessing the ethereal beauty. Later, we will start descending to the same place where we started the trek for lunch.

Soak up the stunning views before you return to Cusco for a refreshing cold chicha drink (a fermented or non-fermented beverage usually derived from maize in Mollepata).

t was certainly the best experience .. LAGUNA HUMANTAY with Happy Gringo Tours
It is a unique and magical destination to discover, walking towards the lagoon allows you to appreciate the great magnitude and beauty that the place has.
Marco who more than a guide became an adventure companion, made the tour a pleasant experience … all the agency staff made it really special from the first moment we received good attention and guidance.

Everything on my trip to Laguna Humantay was fantastic and all thanks to the guide Marko. He is very attentive and never made me feel rushed or ushered. I hiked up at my own pace and he always stood by me ensuring that I was fairing well. Very nice experience.
